Tyree Bruce The galaxy is called Hollywood. Sensationalizing will just result in a loss of readership for you. There were Jews who were in denial about it when it happened — could the very civilized country Germany actually come to the point of committing such crimes against her own people.
July 4th But hey, talk about a catch. Just what on earth do you believe in? It was not merely hatred, it was a policy whose aim was to systematically wipe out a whole people from the face of the world. As a public school teacher in the inner city of NY I can say that Holocaust studies are non-existent. Natalie Portman is a Harvard graduate, and, while enrolled at the University, responded to a an essay in the Harvard Crimson critical of Israeli actions against Palestinians. There should be no rage over her comments. Y kids went to high school with her and she lead quite the charmed life to now be dictating correct and tasteful behavior.
Let her read lines from a script, there is less of a chance of her making a fool of herself. Usually people become smarter with age, not in Hollywood. But Jewish “national education” should put even more emphasis on how we can prevent another such disaster happening.
Both letters in their entirety here. You should look him up. She is wearing blinders. Inshe traveled to Rwanda to learn more about the genocide there. It was not merely hatred, it was a policy whose aim was to systematically wipe out a whole people from the face of the world.
Portman wanted to be Professor Mandel, she-should-would have been a trolley car!
Is Natalie Portman Right and Jews Need to Chillax about the Holocaust?
porgman Thursday, May 23, She wants people to use that knowledge of the Holocaust to work toward ending all genocides still going on around the world.
There were Jews who were in denial about it when it happened — could the very civilized country Germany actually come to the point of committing such crimes against her haravrd people.
We need to be reminded that hatred exists at all times and be reminded to be empathetic to other people who have experienced hatred also. Perhaps Natalie Portman might be right to expect equal reaction from millions of her generation, maybe ashamed of the supposed weakness showed in front of the enemy natapie WWII.
Have you ever seen the full European cut of Leon? The first and most important lesson is Jews cannot depend on the rest of the world to protect them.
Just what on earth do you believe in? There should be no rage over her comments. Why is the author trying to make her look like a jerk and put words in her mouth.
Natalie Portman Strikes Back (Kickin’ Harvard Crimson Butt)
How can Portman and her ilk not see how Europe’s ugly anti-Semetism has arisen with a vigor, as exsay by the BDS Movement, toleration harvagd abuse and attacks on Jews in Belguim and France, and the eagerness of Europe to betray Israel as it lines up to export to the larger market of Iran?
There are too many countries that would love to see another holocaust. I don’t agree with her. Well, she is from Israel, although that doesn’t mean much to some immigrants anymore.
We are at risk and the Holocaust unfortunately is the example to bring to the public. Israel is a mighty, strong, and wonderful nation, its people have never lost their dignity, and they behave with honor.
Something Random from the Week. I would also add that my late mother in law while being Orthodox used hatalie look at her grandchildren and say they were her victory over Hitler and the Nazis.
Natalie Portman’s letter in The Harvard Crimson | The Better Hour
If we forget what happened to the Jewish people, we are doomed to repeat it. A holocaust is not the sort of thing to chillax about especially if you are personally affected.
Not used in a paranoid way of thinking that we are victims. And, I thought that she was beautiful before I read this article. That’s what happens when people are ignorant.
Natalie Portman is a Harvard graduate, and, while enrolled at the University, responded to a an essay in the Harvard Crimson critical of Israeli actions against Pkrtman. Obviously Jews are not worthy of empathy. She did not say to forget or chillax about the holocaust. Maybe she knows something the rest of you don’t? Portman is under french influence.
